recollection is correct, that steve jobs, for example, did not sign that pledge, as did, i think oprah was one of them, didn't sign the pledge -- >> right, and i talked about them in the book. >> then i'll have to read it. [laughter] but what my question, really is is that people -- is the category of good rich only those people who participate in philanthropy, or the good rich also for people for what they do or what they have invented to make our lives better? >> your question is good, and i think your answer is a good one. it is possible to get off the hook, to get off the hook of being rich and make us love you any way even if you aren't philanthropic, and, certainly, steve jobs is an example of doing that. he not only did not give. he scorned giving and said that most people were simply doing it to buff up their reputations, and he was not going to be involved in playing that kind of game. there was a lot of adverse comment during his life about the fact that he was so ungenerous. oprah was different in the sense that she was philanthropic, is philanthropically inclined, but she didn't si
because at steve's the system a lot of time and money rather than going through a trial that's expensive and lasts for days and moves the case so there's a lot of people in the plea bargaining system that benefits from that process. if it's there it's not fair for example if the prosecutor makes a plea bargain with the defendant but doesn't tell the defendant of the evidence against him or doesn't reveal to the defendant that there is exculpatory evidence don't tend to show the defendant is not guilty if the prosecutor suppresses that, doesn't turn it over to the defense that isn't fair. >> is that legal? >> guest: it is not. the of a constitutional obligation to turn over all exculpatory evidence in brady versus maryland it's called brady material he will hear it called. many people remember the duke lacrosse case in north carolina were the prosecutor had this evidence showing that the young men on the team were probably not guilty because none of their dna was found and he suppressed that and ended up getting disbarred in that case which is in and of itself unusual because frequent pro
the whole going from rick, the bureau chief, on to rich, who covered the national security council, steve roberts, and marty schulte who were alternating congress and white house, bernie, the foreign diplomatic correspondent, and they weave in and out. i'll do a long one of marty. primarily because it tells what it was like there without exception if you started in the new york times at that time. marty said, got a bachelor of law degree and then i went into the service for two years and came out and took a v.a. course called, how to get a job. the burden of which was something to do -- go for had gone you're interested. and i wrote 110 makes and i was offered copy boy jobs, mailroom jobs. took the one at the new york times. when you got that job, according to the v.a. course, consider at it food in the door and make yourself useful to the people doing the work you've whatnot to do, and some day a task will come and somebody will be on a project or on vacation or sick and they'll look at you and say, what the heck, he knows how to bring us coffee, how to rip copy of off the machine. give
solicitor general and steve gillis, one of his former law clerks and they help shepherd through this process. neither of them that the well either and i think they and he made a terrible strategic mistake -- to strategic mistakes. first they made a strategic mistake and believing these hearings have any intellectual con tent. [laughter] seven senators asked him questions and he took them seriously but they had no intellectual content. the senators serge knew what he thought. he left a huge trip record. the correct way to proceed with this political theater. this is something his hearings taught everybody send a note hearing since bork to and handled anything like it. the second error he committed is related to the first. 50 to assess and intellectual exchange, is that the senators earlier entries in the substance, he responded with utmost gravity and not with levity. as i said, bob trent great is the funniest men i've ever met. the only person close as justice ginsburg's has been. he was quicker than anybody seen. most of the questions deserved what it your body should have done this produce
